The BeagleBoard is equipped with a DVI-D interface that uses an HDMI connector that was selected for its small size. It does not support the full HDMI interface and is used to provide the DVI-D interface portion only. The user must use a HDMI to DVI-D cable or adapter to connect to a LCD monitor. This cable or adapter is not provided with the BeagleBoard. A standard HDMI cable can be used when connecting to a monitor with an HDMI connector.
